Everyone remember the Harry the Hammer paint scheme that has spirals painted on the armor? Has anyone attempted fine detail of geometric designs like that on their models? What exactly is the method of doing that? Any particular tips?
Or is it pure perseverance? God please don't say perseverance...
I vaguely remeber seeing that model but can't quite remeber it, if I remeber rightly there wasn't a lot of contrast between the base colour and the design, it was quite subtle.
My advice would be to pick a shade slightly lighter than the base colour and water it down, the key here is to water down your paint to a milky consistency and build it up in layers. You want to have the paint as thin as possible, but just thick enough so that it won't run.
Whatever technique you use, the best thing you can do is practice first so you can get a feel for how to do it.
Hope this helps!

Now that is a splendiferous paint job on that there miniature.. its giving me ideas for the upcomming Brass Scorpion..
i would say that is just lots of practice but lately ive been thinking of stencils but that mainly for my tanks but i wonder how hard it would be to make smaller stencils.....now im just rambling on to my self....
so good luck on whatever you decide to do
I'd say stencil it myself, or rather partial stencils even... that is to say, take a thick paper, hold it over part of the shield or other surface to give you a line to work with (or curved paper where necessary), and work your way from the outside in.
You might also look into some tech pens at your local hobby shop.
